  • Cuisine: American


  • 2 (5 ounce) cans wild caught tuna (I used this kind for this recipe)
  • 1 cup diced apple (1 medium apple)
  • 1/2 cup diced celery (from about 4 stalks)
  • 1/3 cup mayonnaise (I recommend this kind)
  • 3/4 teaspoon curry powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon coarse salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon turmeric
  • 1/8 teaspoon black pepper
  • 8 medium tomatoes
  • Garnish with chopped cilantro*


  1. In a medium bowl, mix together the first 8 ingredients until well combined. Place the tuna salad in the refrigerator to chill while you prepare the tomatoes.
  2. Cut the tops from the tomatoes and use a spoon to scoop out the flesh.
  3. Invert the tomato shells to drain.
  4. Scoop the tuna mixture and stuff it inside the tomato shells. Sprinkle with chopped cilantro and serve alone or over a bed of lettuce. Enjoy!


*I recommend chopped cilantro here, but parsley is pictured because the wrong thing was delivered on photo day!
